Echinocactus

Mother-in-Laws Pillow

Originating from Mexico this is a near spherical cactus that can grow over a metre tall. The plants on offer are the size and shape of prickly footballs!

They are a critically endangered species in the wild but one of the most popular cultivated cactus species.Eventually (after many years) it will produce small flowers which viewed from the top will look like two eyes on a big face.
